Legal And yes, the PRISM scandal is far, far from over. More and more information keeps leaking out, and the more gets out, the worse it gets. The companies involved have sent out official statements - often by mouth of their CEOs - and what's interesting is that not only are these official statements eerily similar to each other, using the same terms clearly designed by lawyers, they also directly contradict new reports from The New York Times. So, who is lying?

Government puts gun to your head, and says: "Gi'me the data."


So I guess Twitter just took the bullet, eh? Maybe they wore bullet-proof helmets?

Seriously, we don't know how much pressure was applied but if it's true that you could just decline the offer that does make the companies that joined seem rather suspicious.
